Ex-Cadets and More in the News

With Alex Trebek being in the news, it was brought to our attention that he attended Royal Roads Military College circa 1958-1960. When we could not find any mention of him in the various ex-Cadet databases we have access to we reached out to several people who referred us to the Archives Manager at Royal Roads University.

This is what we were told:

“It is indeed a piece of Royal Roads folklore that Alex Trebek was here. The story I always heard was that he was here for less than a day before he decided it wasn’t for him and left. We have no official record of him here and no college number for him. Never one to leave it at that, I did a bit of digging and asking around today and was pointed to this web resource: https://www.eduinreview.com/blog/2010/12/alex-trebeks-education-background/ which states that it was College Militaire Royal de Saint-John that he attended, and for 6 days.” 

If anyone can confirm that and (ideally) point us to a College number for Alex Trebek, please let us know!
